Based on that, I wouldn't be surprised if Vellucci ends up trading one of the OA's for a future draft pick. Available goaltenders seem scarce this year, so we may have to see how Nedeljkovic can handle the load. That's a lot to put on a 16 year old rookie, though.
All that makes sense, but if all you're going to get is picks, I'd keep whichever overager is going to give me the best chance in the playoffs (whether offense or defense). How's Jones, and do you think the end of the lockout will change the complexion of things? Did defense just get more important, or could Levi go to Charlotte instead? Last week, I would have said Levi was gonna be dealt. This week, I'm not so sure.
